    Instantaneous monitoring of heart beat dynamics during anesthesia and sedation

    Anesthesia-induced altered arousal depends on drugs having their effect in specific brain regions. These effects are also reflected in autonomic nervous system (ANS) outflow dynamics. To this extent, instantan...

    Impact of cardiac surgery on the autonomic cardiovascular function

    The study compares the impact of cardiac surgical interventions on the autonomic function by assessing the pre-operative status and early post-operative recovery of subjects undergoing isolated mitral valve re...

    Fluid responsiveness in liver surgery: comparisons of different indices and approaches

    The expected response to fluid infusion is an increase of cardiac output (CO), and this response depends mostly on the current cardiac function of the patient. The importance of the prediction of fluid respons...

    Comparison of automated vs. manual determination of the respiratory variations in the EKG R wave amplitude for the prediction of fluid responsiveness during surgery

    Electrocardiogram (EKG) monitoring is a common standard of care across all operating rooms and intensive care units. Studies have suggested that respiratory variations in the EKG R wave amplitude (EKGv) can be...
